The project

The main objectives of the project are:

  • To give young Europeans the opportunity to take action to welcome young migrants who are newly arrived in Europe
  • To provide young migrants with access to education & leisure activities,  by developing their skills and competencies through non-formal activities to promote education and wellbeing
  • To increase understanding and respect between communitiesand overcome cultural and religious prejudges and disparities, in order to facilitate more integration in European societies
  • To provide migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers with the knowledge and support that will help them to feel  integrated in their host country, enabling them to pass this knowledge forward to other migrants arriving in Greece and France (specifically, Athens and Paris)
  • To help asylum-seekers and migrants on a day-to-day basis with access to psychological and healthcare support
  • To raise awareness in European society about the situation faced by asylum-seekers, and encourage local communities to be welcoming towards newcomers from different backgrounds and cultures
  • To develop the capacity of youth organisations and support them to develop their youth work practices to ensure long term integration of migrants
  • To empower volunteers to implement actions aimed at welcoming young refugees and newly arrived migrants into their hosting communities
  • To facilitate the interaction between refugees and local communities, thus setting a strong foundation for their future cooperation and mutual understanding
